I will be on vacation (baby leave) for a month during Gun Stock. I am trying to convince my wife that I need to attend. If I can get that one to fly I am going to try and go.

Anyone else thinking of going?

Yep.

Doubtful.

I think he just turned 18 the other day. If he's old enough to get drafted he's old enough to go to gun stuck and get tossed out for a negligent discharge.LOL

Just kidding. Didn't you say you just had a birthday Jackie?

I want to go but the company I work for does inventory in October and nobody can schedule time off until the counting is done. We usually finish in the first week of the month but are not even allowed to plan vacation days until we are actually done!

What day are you guys flying down? That's not a bad idea as far as being "sick" if we were only gone for one additional day either before or after the weekend.

I can write you one, just don't know that they take out-of-state check, uhh, I mean excuse.

I'll go if I can convince my slave driver boss to let me take a few vacation days!!!!
Link Posted: 6/3/2003 4:19:40 PM EDT
I will have to talk to your boss and see what I can do. I feel for you though. I know your boss and he can be a real ass.

But I have some pull down there and I will see what I can do. You know you might have to decide between a trip with your wife to the Republic or fun with me at Gun Stock.

Hmmmm, That is a big decision you will have to make.

I dunno if it will do any good nightsniper; my boss is pretty thick headed.

Gee the Republic or Gunstock.......wonder which one I will choose.
May have to slip the boss some cash to get him to cancel my request for vacation to the republic.

If anyone wants to fly down by private plane, if you rent it, i'll fly it.

Think about it, no TSA or restrictions on guns like the airlines. Faster than driving.

I am 17 as of last Sunday, and I would not be unsupervised. My father would of course come with me. How else would I be able topay for a trip?

Do you have even a remote guess what that would cost? It is a little far fetched but would be a great idea if it were doable!

Naturally it depends on what kind of plane we rent and how many people split the cost. i'll see what i can find out.

Cessna Centurion Turbo 210 w/de-ice equipment & oxygen $195.00 per hour. this includes fuel.

about 1300 Nmiles each way. 2600 total.
A turbo 210 should cruise at 180 Kts.

Being consertive 2600 / 175 = 15 hours round trip.

15 hrs x $195 per hour = $2925

A 210 will haul pilot plus 4 or 5 passengers. figure pilot plus 4 pax plus lots o' guns.

$2925 devide between 4 passengers = $730

These numbers are just estimates. it there is interest i can fine tune it. its more expensive than the airlines. but it would be a hell of trip.

You are quick to assume that I am partial to flight attendants and/or pics of womenz on arfkom. Neither is the case.

Now, $98 is a damn good deal! Congrats.

here is where I am staying

www.marriott.com/dpp/PropertyPage.asp?MarshaCode=WCOFI


I reserved a room with 2 beds and a max of 4 people. $85.00 a night after taxes for friday the 10th and saturday the 11th, checkout the 12th Sunday.

Any none homosexual tendency types wanna room up and split the cost?

What room are you in? I will need to send you hate mail!! I'm jealous as hell. My boss can't get the 4x4 out of his ass far enough to let me have any time off. I can't even assume I can get away just on the weekend because I "may" be needed to work!!!

2WP. If you need to work, then it's cool. But if one is sick, how the hell one supposes to work. Your boss is so unreasonable.
Don't tell me, he is an "unbreakable" kind of guy.

It sounds like a blast but I think the overall cost is too much to bear. May we should plan something shorter like a midnight run to Vegas or something> I'd be up for that!

Don't Rent from "Cruise America"...

They are extremely anti-gun based on the experience of the Cavalry Arms crew at last year's BRC. The company basically abandoned them in the middle of nowhere and cancelled the contract after calling the local PD because they were "transporting firearms".
